Tara La Rose


Tara La Rose is an Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work at McMaster University. Her research focuses on the use of digital media in social work, emphasizing professional critique, critical reflexivity and knowledge sharing. Her aging research includes working on the Rediscovering Social Work Leaders project, which aims to preserve the experiences of retired social workers by digitizing and establishing an online archive of video-based oral histories created in 1983/84. Tara has also published in the ‘geriatric psychiatry’ section of the Queer, Queering and Questioning project in partnership with Dr. Albina Veltman. Her work engages multi-modal analysis, narrative analysis and discourse analysis within critical perspectives such as post-structuralism, post-colonialism, feminist and queer theories.
